Route Date Miles Bike Buddies Notes
Alsea 44 Ravn

Cold morning in Waldport, 44 when I left at 9:30. Warmed up a bit but stayed nice and cool all day. Stoped at Blackberry and made some hot tea out of the cold bottled tea I got on the way out. Stopped again at Salmonberry. Rain was starting when I got to Alsea where I waited for Linda to pick me up.

Once again 34 was a lovely ride home. Once again traffic was very light. Once again there was always a wide spot to pull off just as a log truck was approaching, The later was really uncanny. I had 4 log trucks pass. Only one time did I have to pull off on the gravel shoulder. Three times a driveway or wide spot just appeared out of nowhere right on time. Another time a big oversized load truch passed as I was stopped off the road to pee. Highway 34 has always been a great ride for me.
